Testimonial for Christina Carino CD(DONA)

Christina is my birth angel! I am convinced she was born to be a doula because she is so incredibly intuitive. She knew exactly what positions I should be in at each stage of my labor and she provided the perfect counter pressure on my hips to ease the pain of each contraction. Christina is also a multitasking expert because she was able to hold my hand, keep an eye on what the medical team was doing, and even take photos as my baby girl was coming out. She totally rocked it at my birth! I could not have done it without her and I thank God for sending her to me.

I learned something very valuable from having Christina as my doula for my second birth. All doulas are NOT created equal... You have to choose wisely. My first doula never showed me any exercises to prepare for labor the way Christina did. I asked several times for recommendations and I was met with, “There’s no way you can prepare for labor. You never know what will happen that day." When I asked how she would support me in labor, she simply said, “You don’t have to worry about that. I’ll know what to do.” When it came time to have my son, my labor was augmented with pitocin and I had extremely excruciating contractions. She hardly offered me anything but emotional support. Did that help me at the time? Yes. HOWEVER, Christina not only taught me a bunch of helpful labor-prep exercises, but she also showed up in a strong, effective way at my birth. She was so proactive in providing me with natural methods of pain relief. Not only did she support me emotionally, but she had tons of tricks up her sleeve. I am convinced she has a solution for everything and anything that can come up during childbirth!

So if you’re looking for a doula, look no further! You found her here. I am confident that Christina is the ABSOLUTE BEST you could ever find. She is a true blessing. Thanks a million, Christina! Love you! :)
